Mourning the death of SEIKO MIKAMI (1961-2015)
It is with dismay and great sorrow that we have learned about the
passing of Seiko MIKAMI. She was one of the first members of the Archive
of Digital Art (former Database of Virtual Art) documenting her
ground-breaking installations and interactive art works.
"Seiko Mikami’s work explores the philosophical debate about whether
the world is constructed by human attention as opposed to discovered."
The ADA Team will remember her as a vivid and inspiring person, who
influenced the way we see the correlations between information systems
and human sensing. Her great works are landmarks in the field of
interactive art and will definitely inspire coming generations.
Seiko MIKAMI documented her work quite extensive in ADA, and our team
is currently working on enlarging the material available about her
works. ADA community members are invited to login and add to the legacy
of her artistic career by leaving comments and essays on her works’
